Fun With Color – Rubbings
Jump to this topic
Paper and color (crayons and chalk work especially well for rubbings) are all you need to get started. Next find some handy items with interesting texture. Place the paper over the textured item (the bark of a tree, for example) and rub your crayon or chalk over the paper. The texture of the item underneath the paper will create an interesting design.
Here is an idea for using different textures and different colors to create landscape pictures.
